Independence Day was always a big thing in my family. My mother's family included three signers of the Declaration of Independence and four early US presidents (lots of Revolutionary War veterans, too). My father's family came from Ireland in the late 1800s and they were musicians and singers. So, every Fourth, we had a BIG clam-bake. My father's family would all play music and sing. My mother's family members were 600 miles away, but, when we got together with them, they would sit and sing also. Mom's family included several ukulele players and several songwriters.

This Fourth of July, we plan to sing and make melody.

I hope you all have a SAFE and MUSIC-FILLED Fourth.

Thanks, Pippin, and the same to you! Just got back from the local parade a bit ago, and now it's almost time for me to start grilling the hot dogs. Yup, sounds like the 4th of July to me....

Thanks Pippin.

Here's a little 4th of July ukulele love from Jake Shimabukuro.
